NEW PUBLICATION – Algae collection by Air Floatation

In our publication, Additive-free harvesting of oleaginous phagotrophic microalga by oil and air flotation, Dr. Hosseini, H.A. Starvaggi and Dr. Ju demonstrate that Ochromonas danica (an oleaginous phagotrophic algae) can be collected by simple air floatation and/or partitioning with oil droplets. In pre-testing, algae cultures contacted with an organic liquid (hexadecane) showed that approximately 71% of …

NEW Publication – Soy Flour Carbohydrates via Enzyme Hydrolysis

In a recent article, Dr. Al Loman and Dr. Ju demonstrate that kinetic models can be applied to the enzyme hydrolysis of soy carbohydrates (for improved digestion).  They have described a time, enzyme, and substrate dependent model equation to show the progression of cellulase, xylanase, pectinase, and alpha-galactosidase on the hydrolysis of complex …
